#Dakar2015 Stage 2. Unfortunate team partners

Posted on Updated on

Jan 5, stage 2.

Sadly, our Rally Raid UK team mates must quit the race after stage 2.

Copied from the team’s Facebook:

Jesus Navarro in the Desert Warrior 3, car 424, had six punctures on stage 2 and didn’t complete the stage so has retired.
Ernesto and his son in the Desert Warrior 1 XLR, car 411, rolled on stage and decided to retire.
No drivers were injured in any way, luckily.
Annie Seel in the Desert Warrior 2/car 394, finished stage 3 yesterday with no major problems.

Our team boss Paul comments:
It takes us 6 months to build a car and it takes Dakar rally 2 days to wreck it. This edition of the Dakar is taking its toll early on, seems that everyone has tales to tell and experiences to share. The event is already living up to its fierce reputation.
Indeed, a car burned into ashes and a competitor died, so far.

Other accidents:
One car burnt down totally, and a biker has died, so far.

Game over…😦

Kopierat från teamets Facebook:

Våra vänner i team RallyRaid UK har tyvärr avbrutit efter etapp 2.
Jesus Navarro i Desert Warrior 3/bil 424, hade sex punkteringar och kunde inte slutföra sträckan och fick bryta.
Ernesto med sin son i Desert Warrior 1 XLR, bil 411, kraschade på S2 och måste bryta. Förarna klarade sig utan skador, som tur.
Annie i Desert Warrior 2/bil394, kom i mål på etapp 3 utan större problem.

Team-boss Paul kommenterar:
Det tar 6 månader att bygga en bil, men för Dakar 2 dagar att krascha den. Årets Dakar har krävt sina offer redan tidigt, många deltagare berättar om sina upplevelser, strapatser och olyckor. Tävlingen lever redan upp till sitt våldsamma rykte.

Andra haverier:
En bil brann upp totalt och en motorcyklist har dött, hittills.
